Studio Monitors with the Pure Sound of a Ribbon Tweeter!
The Samson Rubicon 5A is an inexpensive pair of 2-way, bi-amplified nearfield studio reference monitors, featuring a 2" velocity Ribbon high frequency driver.
The very low mass and quick response of the Rubicon 5a tweeter design enables accurate, uncolored high frequency reproduction, with minimal distortion and unwanted dispersion. There is a 4-position HF level control in support of the Ribbon driver, to better match the speaker to the acoustic properties of the room environment. The drivers are powered by a 50-watt amplifier for the low end, and a 25-watt amplifier for the highs.
The Rubicon 5a makes a piece of elite audiophile technology available to the project studio owner at a remarkably inexpensive price point.
